Dear Birding-Aus subscribers

I have just come in from looking for Spotted Whistling Ducks at our sewage
ponds but there weren't any to be seen.  I decided to check the middle of
our three lakes as I have seen them there (only three times in six years)

Amongst the Wandering Whistling Duck, Pacific Black Duck, White-headed
Shelduck, and Grey Teal were 58 Spotted Whistling Duck.  This is the most I
have recorded on campus - so it looks as though they have had a good
breeding season.  Isn't it great to have something to be happy about.
